I’ve always wondered at some of the stat boosts you get in RPGs from armors. Like increased hostility from enemy units. My theory is that they are either super jealous or super fashion sensitive.
Dang, with that color scheme and the way it's cut, I would want to attack the wearer too.
Even people with no fashion sense at all would find THAT offensive, sheesh.
Also, if the Abomination uses the word "abomination" to describe your wardrobe choices, then you're doing something wrong.
This is why it's needed.
I remember an Order Of The Stick brick joke where Haley had a really powerfully magical pair of boots, but refused to wear them because they were lime green. At one point while she was buying a new suit of armor, she was haggling hard enough to get the merchant to offer to dye her boots to match, and she immediately said "Done. But could you dye these boots instead?"
The fashion police in Kirkwall take their job very seriously
@Kagami468: I actually spent quite some time trying to pick out the ugliest colour combination I could manage XD. I am pleased that it makes you hostile ;D.
@Deonis: Haha XD. Actually by the term fashion abomination sorta refers to a conversation Sebastian has with Anders in Mark of the Assassin :D.
@Samalamb: Would you not say the heinous villains are simply heroes saving the poor eyes of the innocents? XD
@riverdaleswhiteflash: Haha, I feel her. Sometimes I'll find really good armor but it pains me greatly if they are ugly XD.
@TheGYouLoveToHate: Indeed, without them the world would spiral into chaos!
You know, I actually don't mind the robe.
@Norgrath: Me neither.
Frankly, it seems like just the outfit to show to a ball of approximate costumes in, if you ever fancied representing a healthy strawberry.
Hmm...I think a nice shining tiara is missing (Hawk as new Disney Princess :P).Well...I have the urge to attack this "insult-for-the-eyes" robe with a pair of scissors.
Sweet mother of god that thing is ugly. I'm pretty sure you could unite a country over just plain hating that "garment"
@Amare: It makes more sense in MMO's I think, but it's a tank stat.
Ergo, it's for the meatshield that -wants- all the enemies to come beat on them while the other party members kill the enemies.
I love Anders' expression in the last panal.
